Title: Comment on 'Stable and unstable vector dark solitons of coupled nonlinear Schroedinger equation: Application to two-component Bose-Einstein condensates'

Abstract

In a recent paper, V. A. Brazhnyi and V. V. Konoto [Phys. Rev. E 72, 026616 (2005)] investigated the dynamics of vector dark solitons in two-component Bose-Einstein condensates. In the small amplitude limit, they deduced a coupled Korteweg-de Vries equation from the coupled Gross-Pitaevskii equations. They found that two branches of (slow and fast) dark solitons corresponding to the two branches of the sound waves exist. The slow solitons, corresponding to the lower branch of the acoustic wave, appear to be unstable and transform during the evolution into the stable fast solitons (corresponding to the upper branch of the dispersion law). However, our discussion shows that these results are incorrect.
